The 1828 Trail Inn
Ranked #2 of 3 Hancock B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

Very beautiful inn. Wonderful service with extras....tea, cookies, cheese, crackers out in the afternoon. On site laundry was very welcome. Great breakfast even with extra blueberry muffins to go. We were the only cyclists staying there the night we were there but the innkeeper was very a knowledgeable in general about the wants and needs of cyclists.

This is a great place to stay. Bill and Darlene are super friendly and helpful. We were biking for the C&O Canal and had a medical emergency. Bill drove the injured to the hospital and stayed with him until he was released, while Darlene welcomed the rest of us, made us comfortable, and made sure a local restaurant could accommodate us. The rooms were very comfortable and breakfast was first rate. I recommend this B&B to all.

This is a wonderful and historic B&B located near the C&O Canal Trail and the Maryland Rail Trail. The proprietors pay great attention to detail, including a garage to store our bikes in, a bike wash, a washer and dryer, drinks and snacks. The rooms are very clean, quaint and comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding. And our hosts, Darlene and Bill, went above and beyond to help and transport me to/from the Berkley Springs emergency room for some unexpected treatment! Bill and Darlene really care about their guests and they will do everything possible to make your stay enjoyable.

We've been to many B&Bs and this one would be the top of the list. Bill and Darlene are perfect hosts. The room was clean and comfortable, the breakfasts delicious. The many special touches, attention to detail, and warm hospitality make this place a winner in our book.

Great hosts with clean classy rooms. There is a garage for bike storage and the bike trail is directly across the street. Location is about midway on the Maryland Rail Trail so you can do half one day and the other half the next day, and visit Fort Frederick at the end of the trail.
Bill cooks up a great breakfast and there are a few restaurants within walking distance for dinner.
I will probably stay there again the next time we ride that trail or are in the area.

This was a great place to stay while biking the trail. Hose to wash off bikes and a garage for safety. We stayed in the Railroad Room and it even had a jacuzzi tub which was wonderful after a long day of biking. The innkeepers had a washing machine, water and drinks and also snacks and brownies. What a treat to have a washing machine and dryer free to use after being on the trail for a week and washing things out by hand. Close to town for dinner. This was a great find!

The 1828 Trail Inn was just what the doctor ordered after a long, rainy day on the C&O. Even though we arrived a little later that we anticipated, we were greeted by Darlene on the front porch and directed to the back of the property where we were able to hose off ourselves and our bikes. After we put the bikes away in the locked shed, we were shown to our room in the "Doctor's office". There was plenty of space to dry our gear and still have room to relax in the immaculately clean and creatively decorated room.. We were offered cheese and crackers, hot tea, etc. upon arrival. Darlene took care to recommend locations for dinner and advised us of closing times. The washer and dryer on site was a real bonus! Breakfast was really tasty, too! Couldn't ask for a better B&B experience.
